5:33 am
bumped into a guy that knows a thing or two about super bowls, i guess, right. >> reporter: yeah, frank, he was working. you don't work on bourbon street, but you never know who you're going to run into, and vern ran into joe montana and he has a little prediction for the game. >> reporter: here we are again, the quest for 6 as they say. >> i know it. i know it. i think it's going to happen. >> reporter: joe thinks it's going to happen. you hear that san francisco. >> reporter: and there you go, that was his prediction right there. of course, the 49ers right frank. >> what is joe montana going to say, ravens all the way, of course he is, he won 4 super bowls and is a stud. what else can you say about joe montana. let's talk about the town. we've been eating a lot of food, learned a lot about new orleans, but time to play a little football now to the fans, are they coming in
5:34 am
finally? >> reporter: the fans coming in. we've seen a few, but the businesses, they want more fans to come into town, so hopefully, hopefully they will be coming into town today. a lot are making their way in to the bay area. and the official roman numerals of super bowl xlvii, they made their way in by barge yesterday. they traveled up the mississippi river and they're going to be docked at a stretch of water front designated as super bowl boulevard and that's going to happen through sunday. the numbers by the way, they stand 30 feet high and a hundred feet wide. very big roman numerals there. we've been talking about this gorgeous sunrise here this morning. there are some clouds, a little chill in the air, but hey, it's a lot warmer than yesterday, lawrence, how is it in the bay area. we are looking good out here, a little fog showing up. a little haze in the skies. by the afternoon we're working
5:35 am
off super weather outside. it is cloudy in some of the valleys, visibility down to a quarter or half mile nana fa -- napa. 57 degrees in morgan him. 66 in san jose. as you head to the east bay, temperatures well into the 60s under mostly sunny skies and looking good inside the bay. 65 in alameda. sunny all the way to the coastline. changes over the weekend. we'll talk more about that. we're taking check of bay area bridges. here's a live look across the golden gate bridge. we have the commuter traffic flowing nicely into san francisco. headlights drive. benicia bridge is a little slow this morning and that should wrap up by 6:00 this morning. let's go out and take a check
5:36 am
of the bay bridge toll plaza now where there are no delays and metering lights approaching the pay gates and they did wrap up overnight road work: and heading toward treasure island. that's check of traffic. 5:37 and i know you don't have a rental car and new orleans is really a walking city, so you have to rely on the cabs a little bit, and i guess there are some issues with the cabs there right. >> reporter: yeah, frank, there may be issues today. we've been taking a lot of cabs from our hotel into jackson square and the french quarter and we've been talking to a lot of the drivers and they're saying that there could be a brief work stoppage today and that's because of some regulation grievances the taxi cab drivers have. obviously that would have a crippling effect on mobility in a city that is pushing tourist capacity, about 150,000 people are expected to be here, and i can tell you getting a cab is difficult already, so if a
5:37 am
significant number of cab drivers were to strike even for a few hours it could cause headaches for a lot of people and everywhere we go we need a cab so we would be in trouble. it was a little tough this morning when i left the hotel to meet these guys for the live shots. hopefully they get it all worked out and we'll have to i guess see what happens. >> and later in the show you're going to get your fortune told or something like that. >> reporter: well, frank, i was told when it comes to new orleans, you have to enjoy seafood, you have to take a carriage ride down the french quarter, we've done that. you have to eat bennays, we've done that and apparently you have to get your tarro cards read so with my heartbeating fast, i did that and you'll have to see what the reading said. >> i see sleep in your future.
